Purrint build 26
Quickly extend the PrtSc key with this simple screen capture tool

Purrint is a small and simple tool which makes it easier to save your screen captures.

The program is extremely basic. There are no extra screen capture types, for instance - you can't grab scrolling windows, freehand areas of the screen or anything else: it's just about saving either the full screen or individual application windows.

This does make Purrint very easy to use, though. There are no extra hotkeys to learn, for instance - all you have to do is press PrtSc or Alt+PrtSc as usual. The program then pops up a window displaying the captured image. And you can either copy the image to the clipboard, print it, or save it to disc (in BMP, PNG, JPG or GIF formats) with a click.

If you're taking a lengthy series of captures then the good news is that you can tell Purrint to choose your preferred options automatically. In which case you can keep hitting PrtSc or Alt+PrtSc and, say, have the program automatically save your captures to disc (by default it'll create the files Purrint001.bmp, Purrint002.bmp, Purrint003.bmp and so on).

There are plenty of configuration options, too. You can set the quality of saved JPEG files, reduce the colour depth of saved images, save files using the name of application window, and so on.

And all this is presented very simply, in a portable 277KB executable which runs under any version of Windows since 95 and requires just a little over 2MB RAM.

Verdict:

We generally prefer our screengrab tools to support more capture types - freehand, DirectX and so on - but if you can get by with just full screen and individual window captures then Purrint could be very useful.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
